About This Toot
Prices and Other Details
back to this year
It's time for another Texas Toot!For the past 25 years people have been gathering yearly (or more) to play recorders, violas da gamba, lutes, harps, and other musical instruments at the Texas Toot. We're going to do it again this year, and you're invited to join in the activities.
The 26th annual Texas Toot will be held at Lakeview Conference Center (south of Palestine, TX) on November 16, 17, and 18. There will be instruction on all sorts of instruments; in addition to the ones listed above you will be offered the opportunity to play and study shawm, krummhorn, bagpipe (historical), hurdy-gurdy, sackbut, flute, and pipe & tabor. There will be opportunities to sing, learn to improvise, dance, and party.
The instructors who will be present to help you are of the highest caliber. Most of them have been present at previous Toots and you know them well:
In addition to classes there will be English country dancing, a faculty concert, refreshments, the Boulder Early Music Shop, group playing, and, of course, The Great Texas Krummhorn Konklave (bigger and better than ever, with some new music, even!).
While we play old (or reproductions of old) instruments, we also keep up with improvements in communications. You may register online, by fax, or by regular mail. We are not yet equipped to take payments by credit card, so all fees must be paid by check.
Please don't miss this Toot.
It is a time to renew old friendships and make new ones.
The best thing about the Toot is being able
to spend a weekend with people who are all afflicted
with the same form of mental illness -
love of early music and the instruments that can best play it.
